Merum Priorati comes as the name suggests, the famous edoch inhospitable Priorat. The winery is among the venieuwers this still fairly conventional traditional region. Merum belongs to the Pere Ventura family which are best known for their beautiful Cavas. The label on the Merum Desti you see walking the contour. A hint to the rugged landscape terraces where the grapes are planted. Everything in this inhospitable area must be done by hand here. The Mesti blend is a blend of grenache, carignan, syrah and cabernet sauvignon. He matures 12 to 14 months in French oak barriques. It is then bottled without clarification or filtering.
